Have you considered chiropractic care during pregnancy in Los Feliz? It's common for women to experience significant lower back pain while pregnant due to the physical stress pregnancy puts on the body.
A woman's body undergoes numerous changes during pregnancy to accommodate the growing baby. As a result of weight gain, a mother's center of gravity shifts to the front of her pelvis, which is not a natural position. This shift can lead to increased stress and discomfort in the lower back and various joints in the pelvis. As the baby grows and the mother gains more weight, the stress on her back increases, causing the lordotic curvature in her lower back to intensify. If there is a history of lower back problems, pregnancy may exacerbate the condition, making daily routines difficult and potentially complicating labor.
Lower Back Pain and Pregnancy
The American Pregnancy Association states that 50-70% of pregnant women experience lower back pain at some point during their pregnancy. This pain generally peaks during the third trimester, as the baby gains most of its weight during this time. The stress on the lower back can also lead to other issues such as leg cramps, abdominal cramping, constipation, and more.
